THE MAHARAJAH ADINDA FAMILIES, is one of the SULU SULTANATE ROYAL FAMILIES besides the KIRAM & SHAKIRAULLAH FAMILIES.

*THE MAHARAJAH ADINDA FAMILIES, was the mandated heirs to kept the Sulu Sultanate Royal symbol's "The Pulau Janggi". This symbol's was the evidence, that the Sulu Sultanate Royal Families was came from the Brunei Sultanate Royal Blood (*Sultan Mawalil-Wasit @ Raja Bongsu-I @ Pangeran Shahbandar Maharajalela Ibni Sultan Muhammad Hassan of Brunei).

(*The British Government was recognised Datu Aranan or Maharajah Adinda Sultan Mohammad Aranan/Adanan Puyo as "Sultan of Sulu" since 1814, in the time of Governor J.Hunt at Sulu).
The Maharajah Adinda Sultan Mohammad Aranan/Adanan Puyo just sat on the Sulu throne for a week only. His name was not put as a "Sultan of Sulu" on the Tarsilah or Khutbah because his time of reigned was not enough "at least for 40 Days" as the protocol required in the Sulu Sultanate System. Because of old and unwealth, he "abdicated" himself from the throne, then by followed the system he gave the throne to Kiram side (Sultan Jamalul Azam @ A'lam Ibni Sultan Pulalon). Since then the Sulu throne just occupied by the Kiram and Shakiraullah Families.
